On the snake eating thing, is there a way we can "unlike" a post?

Lol. I have heard that they are good, but I think Denise and I both would go for peanut butter first.

My son has eaten roasted armadillo while camping. I think he had a lot of beer before making that decision.

Carpe Diem!

Breakfast - Mountain Man breakfast. 1 lb of sasauge browned in Dutch oven At 1lb of shredded potatoes, then add 1 doz eggs. Keep stiring and searve with lots of Tortias. Works good for camps at the truck or first day where you can keep the meat cold or frozen. @nd and 3rd days end up being Pancakes or dehydrated hash brown with some Spam or other canned meat cooked in.

Dinner is often Cheese and Brocholi dry soup mix. Light weight and we get water from the stream or lake. ( filtered of course) served with lots of hard rolls. Even if the rolls mash while being packed in, they are still good dipped in the soup.

Canned Chicken, cooked with a few potatos, carrots, onions is pretty good back country meal also.

We frequently make a Peach cobbler in the dutch ovens. Canned peaches, cake mix are easy to pack

It has been interesting to sit back and read some of your likes in the culinery area.
Your food taken and eaten on the trail is very different to the average New Zealand riders diet.

I personally breakfast, like grain cereal and made up milk with a cup of tea, lunch is usually sandwiches with perhaps lettuce, tomato and ham etc, and dinner some sort of stew, potato, carrot, and dehy peas and of course gravy, and followed by fruit and perhaps a yummy topping.
Variations of these meals are had every day while at camp.. hence why we take a pack horse... and really the pack horse is little hassle once we get into a routine.. love trekking..!

I am very envious of you folks being able to head out on treks over there, its winter here and currently raining, with snow in the mountains where we normally go in summer..
I was talking to a friend who was talking to a trapper wintering over at the StanleyVale hut where we often base out treks in summer. he was saying the other day there was 1.5 metres of snow around the hut and hard work getting around... Roll on summer.....

When I was guiding pack trips in Colorado, we went places where there were no "drop camps", so dutch ovens were out of the question. We carried a light small grill, a couple of roasting forks and two tin "cool handle" frying pans.

My favorite dinner was grilled steaks (often elk), then sliced potatoes and onions with sliced yellow squash and zuchinnis added in. Season with salt pepper and garlic powder....mmmmmmm. Then add some fried bread and you have a simple but great feast.

We are the same, we dont have supply drops hence taking our packhorses, we love the camp oven cooking and love making fresh baked bread and scones etc..
